Pitman, NJ – K-Tron will introduce a new MT16 Micro-ingredient feeder at Interphex 2013, held April 23-25, Jacob Javits Convention Center, New York City, Booth 2473. The new micro-ingredient feeder includes several design upgrades to increase accuracy and performance, including a design feature that allows interchangeable feeding modules.
K-Tron’s micro-ingredient feeder line has been expanded to include interchangeable MT12 mm and MT16 mm twin-screw feeding modules, or MS12 mm and MS16 mm single-screw feeder modules. The interchangeable twin to single screw feed modules provides versatility to handle a broad range of materials from powders to granular materials. The overall feed rate capacity is from 0.02 dm³ / hour to 27 dm³ / hour. The new design allows for extended screw profiles, with a smaller overall footprint, allowing for closer discharge dimensions, ideal for multi-ingredient cluster arrangements. The unit is easy to take apart, clean and maintain, with a totally enclosed weight sensor and drive motor with improved higher torque for handling difficult materials.
The new MT16 micro-ingredient feeder is ideal for applications feeding high value / high cost additives in any food, pharmaceutical, plastics and chemical process that require second to second performance with a high degree of accuracy. Typical applications include feeding jet mills, continuous extrusion processes and any application where expensive micro ingredients require accurate feeding.
